      Prognostic value of characteristics of plaque combined with residual syntax score among patients with STEMI undergoing primary PCI: an intravascular optical coherence tomography study

      Aim: The present study aimed to explore these characteristics, particularly thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA), in relation to residual syntax score (rSS) in patients who presented with acute MI. Methods and outcomes: A total of 434 consecutive patients with MI aged ≥18 years who had STEMI underwent primary PCI. Notably, compared with other subgroups, the presence of TCFA in culprit lesions and a higher level of rSS, were significantly associated with MACE. When rSS was divided into three groups, high rSS levels were associated with a higher incidence of MACE, in the subgroups of without TCFA (P = 0.005), plaque erosion (P ...

    3. Quantitative assessment of vascular features in port wine stains through optical coherence tomography angiography

      Quantitative assessment of vascular features in port wine stains through optical coherence tomography angiography

      Background: Vascular lesions such as port wine stains (PWS) lead to facial and psychological problems, which require careful and precise treatments. The key point of treating PWS is to selectively destroy the abnormal blood vessels. Hence, the in vivo monitoring of targeted vessels is crucial. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), an emerging label-free imaging tool, facilitates the evaluation of skin structure and vasculature at a high resolution. In this study, we utilised OCTA to capture the structural and vascular morphology in patients with PWS. Moreover, we quantitatively characterised the morphological features of different types of PWS. Methods: This observational clinical ...

      Optical coherence tomography guided treatment avoids stenting in an antiphospholipid syndrome patient: A case report

      BACKGROUND Increasing attention has been paid to acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in young female patients for whom secondary factors should be considered during the diagnostic process. Anti-phospholipid syndrome (APS), a rare autoimmune disease that is most common in young female patients, is reportedly related to AMI. To date, coronary interventions, particularly stenting, remains controversial in this special clinical scenario. CASE SUMMARY A 26-year-old female patient was admitted to hospital for acute chest pain, palpitations, and dyspnea. She had a past medical history of APS and pulmonary embolism. Coronary angiography showed acute occlusion of the proximal left anterior descending artery. After ...

      Optical coherence tomography: a potential tool for prediction of treatment response for port wine stain after photodynamic therapy

      Response of port wine stain (PWS) to photodynamic therapy treatment (PDT) is variable and depends on treatment setting used and anatomic sites as well as on size and depth of ectatic vessels. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-destructive imaging modality which can reveal the layered structure of the upper part of the skin. The structural features of the PWS skin such as the diameter and depth of the blood vessels in different anatomic sites can be showed in the OCT images. In this study, the possible role of PWS skin structure in the response to PDT is assessed. 82 ...
